We were there on a Friday afternoon. Great escape from the heat with a nice breeze. It has wonderful view of the Zocalo. We had the Colorado mole and chille rellenos. We found both dishes excellent. We woul not hesitate to return.

This place is a must! The meal we had was very authentic and so tasty! They also serve the best Jamaica drink. The service was impeccable and the view is fantastic.
